Operation Fly Together
On Thursday, May 27, 2021 the Spokane Indians Baseball Team launched the Operation Fly Together campaign. The Operation Fly Together campaign stems from a historic agreement between Team Fairchild and the baseball team, designed to celebrate the KC-135 tanker, build pride for the base's critical functions and help better the lives of Veterans from all services that have settled in the Spokane region. Fairchild Air Force Base’s interest in this partnership is to help better the lives of the veterans from all services that have settled in the Spokane region.
The campaign, supported by STCU, Innovia Foundation, KHQ Television, and The Spokesman-Review, will build financial support and awareness for the newly created Operation Fly Together Veterans Fund, administered by Innovia. In addition, the campaign has been endorsed locally by Spokane County & Eastern Washington Veterans Affairs.
The campaign pillars center around Community, Honor, Education, Support, and Celebration.
